Ambassadors of the G7 countries express their support for the reform of health care in Ukraine and hope for the continuation of the fruitful work of the Ukrainian public figures towards reforms in other sectors.
This has been stated in the official statement made by the ambassadors and published on Monday.
"We, the G7 Ambassadors, having recently met with the Acting Minister of Health [of Ukraine], wish to underscore our support for the healthcare reform plan," they stressed.
The statement says that the adoption of this plan is "a sign that Ukraine is ready and committed to moving forward with its vital reforms, in healthcare and anti-corruption, for the benefit of its citizens."
At the same time, according to the ambassadors, the adoption of the relevant legislation is an important step toward changing the way Ukrainian citizens interact with the state medical system for the better to ensure that they receive the services they need in a rational and legal manner.
"We therefore respectfully underscore our hope that Dr. Suprun and her team at the Ministry of Health will be enabled to continue their work in reforming healthcare in Ukraine, including through the passage of the above mentioned legislation. The Ministry and all Ukrainian institutions involved have our support in this important endeavor," the ambassadors summed up.
